I'm hoping the "interesting" title has attracted some helpful minds as i in fact have been quite foolish.
Ok, i will start from the beginning. (warning i suck at punctuation)
basically i have installed windows 7 on a couple of computers before and i offered to do it to my friends as they have xp and its clogged up with all sorts of nonsense and waiting for it to do something is like watching grass die. so i went to theirs and split the partition put windows 7 on fine and put all their files on it. there were at this point a few updates to do but i just shut down the pc as i needed to open up xp again to use paragon partition manager to shrink the xp partition to near as dammit nothing and make the windows 7 one have more space.
so i did that and it loaded up in that weird way so it can change partitions. once it was all done i restarted the computer and clicked the windows 7 and to my horror!!! it came up with a blue screen and in the bottom right a watermark saying windows isn't genuine. at this point i am like. Shhhiittt!!!! i literally cant do anything except Ctrl+Alt+Delete and i some how managed to get some sort of file browser open so i can save the files on the pc but after that nothing. i cant even enter another key to fix the thing. when i try to shut down i get the option to install updates and shut down but it just says installing update 8 and then instantly turns off.
What can i do??? they can still use xp, but i really need to fix this as they are not best pleased.
but i must tell you now i am quite young and although can do a few computery things do not really know all the terminology and jargon so please talk to me like you are describing it to a primate of some sort. oh my god pleassee help!!!
